    Looks nice man, comes up really well with that polish stuff you bought. Yea looks like one of your fuel rail covers is different to the other one, its on the right way but the stripes are on a different end to the other one. That's a bit strange :S I reckon that guy who had it before you was a bit weird aye

    Well you said you took them off to paint them. The way they are now (with the gap at the front) there backwards. There universal, which is why so many people make the mistake ;)

    thanks man, I just ordered them through super cheap auto. I dont think KS keep any on hand so you would have to wait a week or two for them to be made and then sent through but they are definately available.

    I'm no 5 litre expert but I think you ended up with two of the same fuel rail cover, seeing as if you put one on the other way round the writing would be upside down.
